ABOUT PORSCHE DESIGN TOWER
High end automobile brands and real estate haven’t really had the most frequent of partnerships, without a few exceptions like the Jaguar Suite at the London Taj Hotel. But Porsche Design Studio, who has been an active entity carrying forward the expertise and aesthetics of the auto brand, has now tied up with Dezer Properties to create a 57-storey ultra-luxury tower in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. Amongst other features of the tower, it will enable the owners to drive up their luxury vehicles in a sky-lift, meant exclusively to transport them to their apartments.
With a total of 132 units, the Porsche Design residential tower will have 3 unique drive-in lifts, platform lifts, which will allow owners drive their vehicles into them. Using sensor and controls, these lifts/platforms will then take the owners and their cars to the respective floors and individual apartments, all of which have been allotted separate parking garages. This will ensure a smooth access between the residential premises and parking spaces, without being an obstacle to any other resident around.
The $560 million tower will rise in Sunny Isles Beach as part of a collaboration between Germany-based Porsche Design Group developer and a local developer. It’s the world’s first condominium complex with elevators that take residents directly to their units while they are sitting in their cars.
Pull over into the designated space. Turn off the engine. And enjoy the oceanfront view as you escalate in a glass elevator that takes you, while you are sitting in your car, to the front door of your apartment. You don’t have to leave your car until you are in front of your apartment. After the resident pulls over and switches off the engine, a robotic arm that works much like an automatic plank will scoop up the car and put it into the elevator. Once at the desired floor, the same robotic arm will park the car, leaving the resident nearly in front of his front door. The glass elevators will give residents and their guests unparalleled views of the city or of the ocean during their high-speed ride, expected to last 45 to 90 seconds.
The building, Porsche Design Tower, was approved by the Sunny Isles Beach City Commission.
The cylindrical building will be erected on 2.2 acres of land at 18555 Collins Avenue. The 57-story luxury tower will have 132 units. Smaller units will be allocated two parking spaces and larger ones will have four, with 284 robotic parking spaces in total. There will be three elevators. Residents will be able to see their cars from their living rooms. Owners with fast cars and antiques will have a view of them.
Units will range from 3,800 to 9,500 square feet and could cost up to $9 million.
